New York Yankees Prospects: Preseason Rankings

As spring training opens and many of the top prospects in the New York Yankees farm system are getting an opportunity to show what they can do in Major League camp. Prior to spring games starting, it is time to give readers a look at 20 players who could make a big impact in the New York Yankees’ future. View Examiner's Top 20 below:

One thing to note is that these lists (attempt to) balance pure talent and the probability of reaching, and staying, at the major league level. Not everyone on this list will make it to the major leagues. Even less will make a significant major league impact. In the end, only one or two of these players may become a star, but one never truly knows how they will perform at the Major League level until they earn an opportunity.

In compiling this list, I elected to use Baseball America’s standard for eligibility: All players who haven't exceeded the major league rookie standards of 130 at-bats or 50 innings pitched, without regard to service time. Additionally, player ages are as of Opening Day 2014.
